Skip to comments.Barack Obama's speech disappoints and fuels frustration at Copenhagen (ROFL!)
Posted on 12/18/2009 7:12:36 AM PST by PreciousLiberty
Barack Obama stepped into the chaotic final hours of the Copenhagen summit today saying he was convinced the world could act "boldly and decisively" on climate change.
But his speech offered no indication America was ready to embrace bold measures, after world leaders had been working desperately against the clock to try to paper over an agreement to prevent two years of wasted effort and a 10-day meeting from ending in total collapse.
Obama, who had been skittish about coming to Copenhagen at all unless it could be cast as a foreign policy success, looked visibly frustrated as he appeared before world leaders.

Now we just need to reign in the morons at the EPA, and we should be in good shape on non-existent global warming at least.
Come on, 2010 midterms!
This can’t be true. He has a ‘gift’, you know.
This idiot is an embarrassment to all Americans.
To paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill, “an empty limousine pulled up outside of the Copenhagen Summit, and Barack Hussein 0bama got out.”
Haha. The wheels are falling off, folks ...
Hey— I thought we were supposed to use _actual_ titles when posting. I seriously doubt (ROFL!) was part of the Guardian’s title. ;-)
Visibly frustrated. Glad someone is noticing...
I’m not really sure what to think about -19bowma’s speech at COP15. I’ll just have to wait until I hear what China and India think...
President Whats-his-face thinks that by flying there, stepping in and saving the moment will actually make a difference. What a pathetic sight.
Get the heck home, you moron. You embarrass us all.
My only question is if India and China walked out before, during, or after the speech.
Here’s how we should “boldly and decisively” deal with the climate change issue:
Maybe the Dems can schedule their 2012 Convention in Copenhagen since Bambi has such success there . . .
Awwww...Looks like Bambi’s handlers forgot to bring along the Greek columns and reverb machine. Otherwise, the entire earth would’ve moved in rapture at the 0ne.
You don't think he should come back to the US? Or are you thinking he should be dropped off his home, and then the AF1 aircraft come back to the US empty?
Just made the statement that GW/CC is a FACT.
Zero is certifiable.
There he goes again! Looking down his nose at everyone!
What was the context of “all wee wee’d up”?
The last paragraph of the article summed up the agenda quite accurately I thought:
“The extent of crisis in the talks has taken leaders by surprise. The Brazilian leader, Lula da Silva, told the conference that the all-night negotiating sessions took him back to his days as a trade union leader negotiating with his bosses.”
So Nobama flies a 747 (and attendant planes) and his large entourage there to give a screwed-up few minute speech that makes no difference (other than to further embarrass the United States) to a conference of eco-maniacs and kleptocrats. What’s this moron’s “carbon footprint”? What about “the children”, you freak? I believe the only scintilla of sanity in the Nobama family is “Bo”. The problem they are probably doing unmentionables with him in some way. So sad. Free Bo!
All I heard was him saying something about being held captive or hostage by our fault lines and I rolled my eyes and turned the channel.
Yes, it is a joke.
But Hugo and I view the punchline differently.
Reminds me of his 11th hour bid for the Olympics.
His problem is TOTAL lack of convictions and testicles (well, ONE of his problems) And, he tries to be “popular” instead of LEading - which he is incapable of. His wife is in charge in his house - and his only hope at success is to have everybody like him - then he won’t get his ass kicked.
But, the “make everybody happy” strategy only works until actual ACTION is needed. And, since he is scared of EVERYBODY, he can’t take action - all he can do is go out an mouth platitudes to both sides. So, he is a dismal failure. We don’t call him “zero” for no reason.
By the time he is impeached for “total incompetence”, the left will be more happy to get rid of him than the right.
We KNEW he was incapable of leadership. The left in their infinite socialist religious ecstasy actually thought he WAS something special. Now, they are finding out the truth - and they will HATE him for ruining their one big chance to take over.....
I don’t think Chrissy legs are tingling after this one...
Some “agreement” will be announced that says something like “tremendous and unprecedented progress has been made on addressing global warming, and all the parties concerned have agreed on a framework for a binding resolution to be written and signed in the very near future.” Classic political CYA BS.
There must be a cone of silence surrounding the beltway nowadays cause this fool is living in a dreamland of unicorns and rainbows...
I really doubt these will ever happen.
This is great! It looks like he’s reverting to his true nature-making speeches and doing absolutely nothing of substance -and this is the best issue to do that very thing.
Didn’t they learn after the olympic bid? He can’t even sell a bunch of leftist idiots on their own made up farce. This is just ridiculous. I thought all these global warming idiots were on the same page. It is becoming more clear that if you send a bunch of idiots to a conference on a program that is their religion, they will some how spin it until it turns into butter.
What happened to the “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for” crap, honestly they thought this guy could walk on water. Yeah only after he’d wee’d himself.
We need to question Obama’s mental state.
It seems Obama fancies himself as the Saviour of the world’s problems.
He fancies himself as the person who can solve Climate today and Health tomorrow and jobs on Sunday, etc etc.
But the reality is that nothing gets done.
The idiot Emperor of the United States had no business being there in the first place. The conference was nothing more than an anti western, anti capitalism, anti business gathering. On second thought, he likely felt right at home.
you get a solid B+ for your posting
and man(woman) do you know HTML
i will not want to meet you in the sandbox
“But the reality is that nothing gets done.”
And that is why the economy, healthcare, etc is in the shape it’s in. Great post!
He doesn’t embarrass me.........I voted for Sarah.
Welcome to our nightmare.
Yeah, after it was frozen over.
New strategy? Maybe he can walk on ice?
I’ll raise you an A+ for your tagline. :)
He may be the president but i honestly would not piss on him, if he was on fire for the way he has cheapened the presidency into a celebrity consolation prize.
“Get the heck home, you moron. You embarrass us all.”
By “home” do you mean Kenya? ;)
PREDICTION: In his remaining 37 months, this lame-duck will visit many capitals, but he will NEVER AGAIN fly back to ChokinHagen.
Fraser’s fictional Brigadier-General Sir Harry Paget Flashman VC KCB KCIE once told Queen Victoria, “I won’t mince words with you, highness,” and then proceeded to mince them just as finely as anything had ever been chopped into tiny bits.
May this whole farce of man-made climate change continue to fall apart at the seams. It is, in reality, nothing more than a revenue generator for certain governments and industries. It would do absolutely NOTHING to change the environment, and these snake oil salesmen know it.
May the same fate befall ‘health care reform’ as well.

sad that it was all i could do
i am still upset about it
Well, he likes to think he can come to big meetings in Copenhagen, at the last minute, and seal the deal.
We all remember his success with getting the Olympics don’t we?????
Obama might be gun shy about Copenhagen now. His best efforts at negotiation/closing the deal don’t work.
It isn’t over until the fat lady sings but...
If all these reports like the Guardian are true it appears Copenhagen will REALLY turn out to be Constipagan.
